Quintuplets doing well

The first-ever Czech quintuplets, born in June, are reported to be doing well and may be released from hospital in early August, according to the family’s spokesperson. All five babies now weigh over two kilos each and have overcome the health problems connected with a premature birth. Although the babies’ birth generated enormous interest, their twenty-three-year old mother Alexandra wants as little publicity as possible for fear of envy and anti-Roma prejudice.
